28-year-old Tim Bergling was a beloved musician known as Avicii. On April 20, 2018, Tim took his own life in Muscat, Oman, and rumors immediately began to swirl around what caused his death.
It has recently been confirmed that Tim passed away as a result of suicide. His family has made multiple statements at this time, confirming that his death was not accidental.
According to his family, “Tim was not made for the business machine he found himself in; he was a sensitive guy who loved his fans but shunned the spotlight.”
According to Oman police, they have determined that there was no foul play in his death. His parents, sisters, and brother have now arrived in the country and are devastated by their loss.
Avicii has had a well-known battle with alcohol and drugs, and he has been clear and open about his struggles. In fact, in 2016, Avicii announced that he was retiring from touring in order to focus on his own health.
Avicii will be sorely missed by all who had the opportunity to know him. His family is devastated by this loss, and we can’t imagine what they are going through.
